West Coast Fireworks going ahead

New Year's Eve fireworks displays will be going ahead as planned in Streaky Bay and Ceduna on Friday evening.



In Ceduna, the fireworks will commence at approximately 9.45 pm on Friday. The council is asking pet owners to ensure they are secured on their property.


Due to COVID concerns, Council is also asking those planning to view the fireworks from the foreshore to distance themselves 1.5m from other spectator groups or wear a mask.


A 150m exclusion zone will be set up, land and sea, from the Puckridge Boat Ramp and access to the boat ramp and car park will be restricted from 6 pm - 10 pm.


It's a similar situation for visitors and residents in Streaky Bay with their planned fireworks still going ahead despite the cancellation of their planned children's festival on the same evening.



Streaky Bay council released a statement earlier this week saying that the Children's festival and fireworks usually attracts between 1500-2500 participants/spectators. As a result of the expected level of attendance, it would be difficult to maintain social distancing in these areas.


Despite the concern the fireworks display, to be produced by Bright Star Fireworks Pty Ltd, will go ahead as planned at dusk.


For safety reasons, vessels and persons other than those participating in the event are prohibited from entering the Streaky Bay Jetty from 10.00 pm to 10.30 pm on Friday 31 December 2021 and from 12 pm on Friday 31 December 2021 to 12:30 am on Saturday 1 January 2022.
